Education – Is it mere literacy:What is education? Do you feel Education is simply attending the classes, hearing the lessons, attending exams and getting ranks? Is it the education? I feel education is not mere literacy and it is above all that.
Education means a total and all-round development. It should lead to the harmonious development of a student's personality. It should make him aware of what is happening in his country and in the world around him. It should also develop him as a leader. Instead of being a book-worm alone, the student should become a good all-around personality with knowledge and general awareness of the society. He should be able to fight the battle of life if the situation desires.
